  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Earns second win

    Pineda (2-3) allowed two runs on five hits across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Guardians. He walked two and struck out two.

    Pineda earned a win in his Detroit debut back on April 21, but this was his first victory since then. The veteran recently missed about six weeks with a fractured right middle finger, and he's now allowed five runs across 10 innings in two starts since returning from the injured list. Pineda will carry a solid 3.62 ERA into his next scheduled outing Monday against the Royals in one game of a doubleheader.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Takes loss in return

    Pineda (1-3) allowed three runs on seven hits over five innings Friday, striking out three and taking the loss against Kansas City.

    Pineda gave up one run through three innings before Vinnie Pasquantino and Hunter Dozier tagged him for back-to-back homers in the fourth. It was Pineda's first start since May 14 after a stint on the injured list with a fractured finger. The 33-year-old righty now owns a 3.62 ERA with a 15:4 K:BB through 27.1 frames. Pineda is lined up to face Cleveland at home next week.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Activated, starting Friday

    Pineda (finger) was activated from the 15-day injured list and will start Friday against the Royals, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    As expected, Pineda is back to oppose Brad Keller after missing more than six weeks with a fractured right middle finger. Alex Faedo was optioned in a corresponding move. Pineda built up to 3.2 innings in his second and final rehab start for Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: On track to pitch Friday

    Pineda (finger) is expected to be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Friday against the Royals, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Pineda made his second rehab start with Triple-A Toledo on Sunday and allowed two runs over 3.2 innings, and he's poised to make his next start in the majors. The veteran right-hander is likely to face some workload limitations in his first start back from the fractured middle finger on his right hand.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Covers 3.1 innings in rehab start

    Pineda (finger) struck out two over 3.1 innings in his rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Toledo, allowing an earned run on four hits and one walk.

    The right-hander was pulled after throwing 46 pitches (31 strikes), so he'll likely need at least one more rehab outing on the farm to build up to a traditional starter's workload before the Tigers are comfortable bringing him back from the 15-day injured list. Due to a favorable upcoming schedule that includes a pair of off days next week, the Tigers should be able to get by with a four-man rotation until Pineda is potentially ready to return from the IL for next weekend's series versus the Royals.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Slated for rehab start Tuesday

    Pineda (finger) will make a rehab start at Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Pineda is slated to face live hitters at some point this weekend, and he'll return to game action with the Triple-A club early next week. The right-hander has been out since mid-May due to a fractured right middle finger, so it's possible that he'll need several rehab appearances prior to rejoining the Tigers. However, Pineda seems to be on track to return sometime in early July.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Could make rehab start next week

    Pineda (finger) is scheduled to face hitters in live batting practice at some point this weekend, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Assuming Pineda's fractured right middle finger causes no complications during the upcoming throwing session, he could receive the green light to begin a minor-league rehab assignment as soon as next week. Since Pineda has been sidelined since mid-May with the finger injury, he may need two rehab outings before he's ready to slot back into the Detroit rotation. His eventual return will be a welcome development for a Tigers squad that currently has three starting pitchers residing on the injured list and another (Eduardo Rodriguez) on the restricted list and without a clear timeline to rejoin the big club.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Throws bullpen session

    Pineda (finger) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Pineda has been out with a broken finger since mid-May after getting hit by a comebacker. He was limited to mostly fastballs and changeups Tuesday and still has plenty of steps to complete before being cleared to return to the active roster, but he's at least trending in the right direction.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Likely to avoid multi-month absence

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday that Pineda isn't expected to require surgery for his fractured right middle finger, but the 33-year-old is still expected to be sidelined for over a month, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Pineda landed on the 15-day injured list Sunday and is expected to be re-evaluated in a couple weeks. Although Pineda is in line to miss at least a month, Hinch is optimistic that the right-hander's absence won't last multiple months. With Matt Manning (shoulder) and Casey Mize (elbow) still on the shelf, the Tigers are thin on starting depth, even after bringing up Alex Faedo from Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Officially lands on IL

    Pineda was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a right middle finger fracture.

    This was inevitable after Pineda was hit by a comebacker Saturday, suffering the broken finger. He has a 3.22 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 22.1 innings. Alex Faedo will be recalled to join the rotation Monday.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Suffers broken finger

    Pineda has a broken middle finger on his right hand and will head to the injured list, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Pineda exited in the second inning of his start Saturday against the Orioles after being hit in the hand by a comebacker. Initial reports indicated that he'd escaped with merely a bruise, but it turns out that he's dealing with a more serious injury. He'll be out long enough to require a trip to the injured list, but that's all the clarity that's emerged thus far.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Exits with right hand contusion

    Pineda exited Saturday's start against the Orioles due to a right hand contusion, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Pineda was hit by a comebacker in the top of the second inning and was removed from the game after being visited by trainers. He'll undergo further evaluation, so it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to make his next turn through the rotation, which tentatively lines up for Friday in Cleveland. Prior to his departure, the right-hander tossed 1.1 perfect innings against the Orioles.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Takes tough-luck loss

    Pineda (1-2) allowed just two runs on six hits across 6.2 innings but took the loss Monday against the Athletics. He walked two and struck out four.

    For the third time in four starts this year, Pineda allowed two runs or fewer, but the righty only has one win to show for it. Part of the problem is that the Tigers have scored an MLB-worst 78 runs across their 28 games (2.8 runs per game), but Pineda also failed to last beyond five innings in any of his previous outings, so he's been relying a lot on his bullpen. He surpassed that mark Monday and gave himself a good chance to win, though Detroit didn't score at all, falling 2-0. Pineda will at least carry a solid 3.43 ERA into his next scheduled start Saturday against the Orioles.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Doesn't factor into decision

    Pineda allowed two runs on four hits across 4.1 innings and did not factor into the decision in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Pirates. He walked two and struck out four.

    Pineda has pitched reasonably well with a 3.77 ERA across three starts, though he has yet to log more than five innings in any of his appearances. The big righty had a delayed start to spring training due to visa issues, so the Tigers may still be easing him into action to some degree, though he didn't help his cause by needing 85 pitches to retire 13 batters Wednesday. Pineda will look to pitch a bit deeper into the game in his next scheduled start Monday against the Athletics.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Tigers-Pirates postponed

    Pineda and the Tigers won't play the Pirates on Tuesday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in Detroit.

    The two teams will reconvene for a straight doubleheader Wednesday. According to Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press, Pineda will start the first game of the twin bill, while Alex Faedo will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start the nightcap.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Can't duplicate success

    Pineda (1-1) allowed four runs on seven hits across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Twins. He didn't walk anyone and struck out two.

    For the second straight start, Pineda went five innings, but he couldn't match his season debut of five scoreless frames. Home runs plagued the righty, as he allowed three of them, including two by Max Kepler. Pineda isn't a big strikeout guy with only four so far in 10 innings, so his margin for error is pretty slim, particularly when he's serving up long balls. The veteran will look for better results in his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Pirates.

  • Tigers' Michael Pineda: Impresses in first 2022 start

    Pineda (1-0) tossed five scoreless innings to pick up the win Thursday against the Yankees. He allowed just three hits and struck out two.

    Pineda, who joined the Tigers on March 18, had a delayed start to camp due to visa issues, so he opened the season ramping up with Triple-A Toledo. The veteran looked good in his Detroit debut, and about the only negative was that he wasn't allowed to work deeper into the contest, as the team cautiously pulled him after 60 pitches. It's a good first impression nonetheless, and Pineda will look to build on it in his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Twins, whom he played with last season.
